These were super cute and super comfortable for kids to wear. They are made out of felt. Cut two red circles, 6 black ‘dots’ and one black line. Glue the dots and line on one of the red felt circles. Sew around the red circle right sides in and flip them out. stick a cardboard circle inside and stuff only one side of the cardboard with foamy. Sew it shut. Get 2 wide black elastic bands and sew them on the ’shell’ like a backpack. Make antenna out of pipe cleaners and pom-poms. I put ones for my 7-yr-old on a head band and for my little one I just sew them on her black hoodie. Get kids to wear all black clothing underneath. I think you can totally adapt this and make a turtle next year!
